4-3-2-1 Apple Pie Parfait

4 ingredients.

3 easy steps.

2 speedy minutes.

1 delicious parfait that tastes like an apple pie.
Sweet apples, cooked to perfection and layered with creamy vanilla yogurt, then topped with a sprinkling of graham crackers and cinnamon. This guilt-free, breakfast-friendly parfait tastes just a spoonful of apple pie-- but it is so much better for you and can be made in the microwave.

I know. It's ok to dance. Don't worry-- I did, too.

I don't want to hold you up any longer-- here's the recipe.

  1. I'd do this without cooking the apples personally. I don't like the mushy apple texture. So crunchy might be just as good.

    1. And its wonderful that the recipe can be customized like that! The apples don't get mushy in this recipe (I would say they are softer), and do retain some crunch, but raw apples certainly are a treat! :)
